7:45 pm
had 4 stakeholders with the providers as well as the city staff and to come to a general agreement about the homeless outreach team moving forward we're starting to hire additional workers and one of the benefits we had in our falsify before the stakeholder process began was an amount consensus we need to expand our homeless needs across the city. given the common ground we focused on better cooperation between your service providers to serve clients betters on our streets the need to increase the homeless outreach program and to enhance the homeless team to serve is homeless population on our streets and to strengthen
7:46 pm

7:47 pm
>> you can see it now? so we had 4 meetings that was facilitated by supervisor farrell's office dr. farrell - including those agencies that was a very good conversation and we made some modifications to the proposal that you approved a couple of weeks ago. i'm going to summarize some of the changes not too much daily. in terms of the funds the total amount was kept but we did redistribute those fund instead of adding two things to the program we're redistributing those dollars to a street medication teem we're going to obtain strengthening the
7:48 pm
infrastructure of the homeless outreach team we reduced it by one senior social worker and we also are looking at the make up of the team and the training they'll be having to look at the excess for the lgbt looking for them to provide additional support in addition to being the port hill, if you will, into the team martin luther king a they'll be doing more services on site on the street and we'll be looking at many exists for the points specifically. and more presence of the team in the various neighborhoods so expanding the number of those outreach members. and then looking at the civiltion by these to transfer those to the permanent housing that's appropriate for an individual client. this shows the addressed team not 5 total but 4 total and the
7:49 pm
yellow looks at the new positions. this is the 1 response to street messes we're looking to add a nurse practitioner with a nurse on the team and enhancing the specialities to be part of the health team. in addition, i was talking about in terms of it is san francisco homeless working with the homeowners providers in the neighborhood and looking at having for oversight and the that's the stabilization rooms and having more and more continuity and creating an infrastructure where we have continual conversation with individuals in the homeless programs. as i mentioned the bottom line
7:50 pm
is still the same and happy to answer any questions that you have >> supervisor farrell. >> supervisor kim. >> oh, thank you, ms. martinez thank you for the presentation. i brought up my affirmation around the private buildings we largely fund and rent out 75 percent of all the rooms in those buildings yet several of the building not all the buildings i'm familiar with have immense code violations on file with dbi with bug issues and others i wonder what the process is going forward around the 0 beds to make sure they're working with responsibly property owners their incrediblyer relocating responsible and do nothing to bring their buildings up to code
7:51 pm
and so what will be the process moving forward on the destabilization beds >> well, it will have a destabilization coordinator and in terms of making sure that there is a that the clients in the stabilization rooms and the staff are in compliance with the grievance policy but having the position of looking for the stabilization room will help to facilitate that. >> do you have a rule with contractors that refuse to comply. >> that will be in our housing area urban health division. >> we've made several complaints with dbi and it's
7:52 pm
incredibly frustrating we continue to provide 70 percent of the incomes for the landlords city are taxpayer dollars that are bug ridden and elevators don't work so folks on the street are refusing services and on top of that we're rewarding bad behavior and providing profits through taxpayer dollars to landlords that are not taking care of the tenants so i want to say a tougher law their abated and procured. >> okay. i'll get back to you. supervisor tang >> my question is that given the reconfiguration even though a lot of the total line is the
7:53 pm
same can you talk about the annual listed cost. >> the annual listed cost of the new allocation. >> overall i know that i said the dollar amount of the supplemental is still the same by given the reconfiguration. >> so if annual listed the $6.3 million. >> any other questions? okay. thank you very much. you're welcome >> supervisor farrell. >> again, thank you for the decision discussion a number of years ago thank you to all the service providers especially bev and awe magnitude from hope we having had adjustments and it was responsive to this is a step in engaging with our homeless in
7:54 pm
the city to help them get off the street. >> okay. let me see if there's any members of the public who wish to speak. >> ray with san francisco open government einstein said doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different outcomes now we're going to shove anyone for the homeless problem any cultivation of the homeless program we've got x number of people off the streets and you get i can't answer that but the public who is participating in the hearings want to get the answers to the same questions i don't why you get answers to the
7:55 pm
questions but the citizens are denied the same answers you have the mayor's office who is doing everybody to criminal lists is homes people are hired to push people along go over there where we don't see you where the tourists don't see you. people going off into the street the homeless problem is getting worse and worse but we see nothing to keep people from becoming homeless only after they're out of their home that anybody shows interest i call the programs that the city calls available there's nothing but call us back when you're in the street and we'll help you and the mayor is trying to keep the homeless out of the library you don't need to do the
7:56 pm
outreach go to the burger king and you'll see tons of them the commission is trying to criminal lists to keep them out of the restrooms or a place to stay >> thank you very much. next speaker. >> yes. passport war field i'm not involved with a this directly you i can say certainly at least one outreach person a has presuming bely been at library but i want a lot more visibility for the program for the public. at the library it homeless outreach program has been along with the social worker pretty much inevitable there's nothing about the posting of the
7:57 pm
availability or persons to help the public no reports that i'm aware of that come to the library commission with respect to the services that are provided. when i go to my local branch liberal there's lee at least in the basement a whole range of materials to people who are homeless like where you can get lunches and food bags and where can you get a shower or a bath etc. at the main library which is generally conceded to be the primary place where the most homeless people are there's absolutely nothing posted along those lines. i particularly asked the security staff whether i was simplifying somehow missing in this main library there isn't the level of information for the
7:58 pm
homeless folks that's available at the branch they said no, it's not posted. i want to not so much to have the technical reports about the staffing and structure but some little portion that will make what was available visible to everybody including those who are not homeless but may be in contact or voices advise the homeless as well >> thank you very much. next speaker. >> dr. espanola jackson again. you know this is nothing new. it's been going on over the last 15 years homelessness for the people in san francisco. i've stated it has been made by design. we're moving poor people out of san francisco let's be real about this.
7:59 pm

8:00 pm
and use the money inappropriately you're going to talk and nothing being done >> that i is there any additional public comment with that supervisor farrell any final comments. >> thank you for putting this through a month ago and the last comment to the dph staff look forward to seeing in make an impact on the city. >> supervisor tang. >> before we take a vote i want to thank the dbi staff for responding to needs as well as the office just to be consistent with my vote initially unfortunately, i won't be able to support this today. we have a sensitive
